At a nominal 60% per annum 1
000% and not 180% - a thousand-to-one difference in magnitude? It is precisely analogous (height-wise) to not being able to tell the difference between a child's doll house and the Empire State Building! The concurrent paradox is as to how the bogus “nominal” interest calculation methodology that is prohibited and criminalized in the U.K. under the Consumer Credit Act of 1974 (and multiple U.K. Criminal Code statutes) 1
000% on a payday loan as somewhere between 180% and 850% and virtually no one notices. It is arguably the single most important determinant-in-fact of their quality of life and the masses are looking straight at the Empire State Building and being told that it is a child's doll house. Yet they have no clue even that there is something wrong with the numbers. We have truly been made innumerate. There was one government (or government sponsored) study that I came across related to the payday loan industry where it was suggested 1
000% per annum. It is a fairly simple calculation and easily verifiable.[1] So what is it about the mind that allows us to function in a world where there is no more real determinant of our quality of life than interest generally 1

198. What may appear to be a near trivial difference is actually a form of mathematically engineered leverage which increases the total cost of borrowing (cost of the contract) by 93% at a stated interest rate of 15% per annum. A mortgage or any term loan is designed with the monthly payment amount determined so as to be just slightly more than the initial (first month's) interest cost so that the loan will take 30 years (or whatever desired amortization period) to pay off.
